A camera and the eye of an artist.
I can see how much fun you are having (besides working hard!).

You can't fail to be inspired, with so much beauty all around. Have a lovely day, Vicki.

That's a slow worm, I think. I don't see them over here although there are some about, I'm told.
Pictures lovely.
Isn't it wonderful at this time of year, seeing all that colour.
There are signs here in England of an early Autumn coming. We had such an early Spring, it will all be over bar the shouting soon!

I do not like millipedes at all. Here in South Africa, we call then shongololos. When I was a child living in Zimbabwe (then S. Rhodesia) they grew to a gigantic size after after the rains, they'd come out in their millions. They'd be crushed by passing cars on the roads and I can still see the cream ooze that spilled out of their hard exoskeletons and smell the stink they gave off! Fortunately, they don't get too big here, but they get into everything. I have heard they are poisonous, so I don't think anything eats them!

Your flowers are beautiful, my favourite being your glorious clematis! Loved the goldfish peeking out behind the lily ;)

Beautiful flowers. Something to enjoy when sitting in the shade during the heat of the day!

He seems quite ugly among these exquisite flowers, but he has certainly his place inside mother Nature ...

Thérèse said...

Are you speaking about the harmless millipede? It can't either bite, pinch, or sting and we need something black in each part of the home... the garden is home too, right? :-) Thks for visiting Chandler a to z.

I have nothing against millipedes --- and often rescue them when I find them in the house (which happens pretty often) and return them to the great outdoors. This fellow crawled by me as I was sitting and weeding.

Suz said...

oh what a slice of heaven you have there Vicki....a great place to commune

Jon Lee said...

The flowers are beautiful. The great part of nature are the little creatures who come around us. I have just taken pictures of the flowers around my house. I will have to post them soon. I always thought North Carolina was a beautiful state.

Everything was fine till the picture of that creepy crawley thing. Gave me chills.

Tess Kincaid said...

Gosh, your clematis is glorious.

jennyfreckles said...

I rather like the millipede. I wonder why they need so many legs? For some reason I always imagine all those feet in wellington boots!

Vicki -- If that is a millipede -- aren't they good for the soil? -- barbara

Vicki Lane said...

If anyone wonder what it was Zuzana said (in Czechoslovakian) it was 'Beautiful! Have a nice day.' Or so the online translator tells me.

hezky den to all of you!

I love all your photos, especially the hosta. Nasty millipede! We get giant slugs here in the Pacific Northwest. Amounts to the same problem :D

Well clearly, HE is enjoying the same beauty you bring to us. Although he may be using an extra sense. Tasting?
